With anticipated growth and ongoing transportation needs, the county is seeking community input to create its first long-range transportation plan. This plan, known as DuPage Connects, will govern transportation policies and practices in the county for the next 25 years. The goal of the plan is to create a vision and mission for the DuPage County Division of Transportation and to help ensure a sustainable and vibrant quality of life for residents and businesses, the release stated.
